Peets Coffee not coming to South End

Peets Coffee South EndBack in February there were many rumors that Peets Coffee would open their first location in the South End in the space formerly occupied by local coffee shop, Francesca’s, which had closed the previous summer. BostonInno was the source to officially break the news but over the weekend I was told this deal was now off.

The owners of the building have been using the space to hold supplies as they renovate the apartments above but there is little word on who / what may go into this prime real estate.  The neighborhood association has indicated they would like a coffee shop or cafe and rumors are that both the South End Buttery and Flour were approached but were not interested.

One wonders what is gossip and what is real but the sad truth is that this prime space remains vacant and I think that stinks.

 

Summer fashion tip

I was reminded again today while strolling down the street in Ogunquit, ME that not everyone realizes sandals and socks are not intended to be worn simultaneously. Please help spread the word.

BosGuy and his big ducky

Albany NYHere I am relaxing in my friend’s pool last summer. I’m out visiting my friends again this weekend and probably will hang out with my good buddy, rubber ducky, while I’m there. Have a great weekend.

Monday blues

Memorial DayFor many Americans this Monday isn’t quite so blue. I hope you can spend your Monday morning relaxing and enjoying your day rather than rushing around trying to get to work.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend

The last Monday in May is Memorial Day in the United States.  The holiday is meant to remember those who died while serving in the US Armed Forces, but for many the holiday will be spent by the beach or with friends and family since it officially kicks off the summer season.

If you are lucky enough to have Memorial Day as a holiday, I hope you can enjoy the time off and have a fantastic weekend.  Blogging will be a bit lighter this weekend than normal.

Boston Ballet presents Pricked

Boston Ballet PrickedTomorrow night the Boston Ballet opens with their latest production,  Prickeda contemporary repertory program consisting of three works, that will introduce you to two brilliant choreographers.  

If you’ve not been to the Boston Ballet in a few years or if you’ve never been, I’d strongly encourage you to pick up a pair of tickets to this performance to experience this modern ballet.  

Boston is so lucky to have the Boston Ballet and like Joyce Kulhawik use to say on WBZ “You Gotta Have Arts!” so go out and support them. You may be surprised by how much you enjoy yourself.
